Non-Refoulement Freedom of Movement Rights to Liberty and Security of the Person Other Rights
The basic principle of refugee law, non- refoulement refers to the obligation of States not to refoule, or return, a refugee to the frontiers of territories where his life or freedom would be threatened on account of his race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion.
Freedom of movement, however, is also a key right for refugees within their host country. Article 26 of the 1951 Convention provides that States shall afford refugees the right to choose their place of residence within the territory and to move freely within the State.
The right to liberty and security of the person is important in the context of how asylum seekers are treated within the intended country of refuge. The national laws of several countries provide for the detention of asylum seekers at one point or another during the adjudication of their claims.
The rights to education, access to justice, rights to have medicate, rights to have citizenship, employment and other fundamental freedoms and privileges similarly enshrined in international and regional human rights treaties. In their enjoyment of some rights, such as access to the courts, refugees are to be afforded the same treatment as nationals while with others, such as wage-earning employment and property rights, refugees are to be afforded the same treatment as foreign nationals.
